CHICAGO (CBS NEWS) – A class action lawsuit against Starbucks (SBUX) claims the coffee giant rips customers off with the amount of ice it gives out in its chilled drinks, according to multiple reports.
The suit claims the drinks are almost half ice, and thus misrepresent the actual amount of liquid in the beverages, according to Courthouse News Service.
The class action suit was filed in Northern Illinois Federal Court last week, with Steven Hart with Hart, McLaughlin & Eldridge in Chicago as the lead attorney.
In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs claim it’s a question of fluid ounces, not drink satisfaction.
